Today was Sawyer's first Halloween, and lucky for us, we happened to be in the USA! So we had a fun and eventful day. There was never a debate in our mind about what Sawyer would be for his first Halloween: a lion. Born in East Africa, Sawyer is strong on courage and he does a great little growl/roar at totally random times (best recorded in Kara's midnight video... he woke up, crawled around the crib, and roared right into the camera).
To start the festivities, we took Sawyer to the first birthday party he's had the pleasure to attend, that of his friend Sophia Grace. He had a blast hanging out with all the other kids and playing with the many toys. Always a ham, he was happy to be in the middle of a circle with everyone looking in and cameras all around.
Back home, we took Sawyer down the street for his first shot at Trick-or-Treating! He did quite well and garnered many oohs and aahs, plus some candy for his family.
One neighbor even saw him coming and dropped a baby food jar in his basket. Then when we got home and checked out our haul, he managed to chew into a Kit-Kat bar wrapper and had chocolate all over his face before we knew what he'd done. it would appear our boy likes chocolate.
